Crazy Dough Pizza Recipe - One dough will yield you this amazing result!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Recently, I shared with you all the recipe for Crazy Dough! It’s probably one of my favorite recipes I’ve ever shared, because it’s a no-fuss, no-knead recipe with tons of Big and Bold potential. From just a single bread dough base, you can make a variety of entirely different sweet or savory bread-based baked goods, ranging from naan bread, cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, or even cheesy bread loafs, to name but a few. As a result, the potential for this dough is limitless. All you need is my master dough recipe and you’ve got tons of baked goods at your disposal!

One of the the many creative ways you can use crazy dough to improve your baking is by making it into a pizza base to create some Crazy Dough Pizza! It works perfectly as a pizza dough, since it’s easy to roll and gives you a thin, crispy crust when cooked. If you put on my 5 Minute Pizza Sauce in addition to the dough, you’ve got yourself a delicious gourmet pizza!
This recipe makes around four large pizzas, perfect for a hungry family on a weekend night. However, if you don’t see yourself eating all four pizzas in one go, pop the others in the freezer pre-portioned. Simply defrost your pizzas dough when the craving kicks in.

While I adore the classic pepperoni and cheese pizza, I recommend rooting around in your fridge for other tasty ingredients you can throw on there. Most of baking is about experimenting, so throw in some new things to see what you like! Bake your pizza in a hot oven for just 9-12 minutes to get that lovely crust nice and crispy.
Once it was done baking, I couldn’t have been happier with the result! The dough rose up around the edges, forming a delicious crust and crisped up on the bottom just like any pizza lover likes!

I’m so happy to be able to add this recipe to my pizza repertoire. Since it’s so simple to make, requires no special ingredients, and keeps in the flavor like a dream, I can’t imagine making pizza any other way. Due to this recipe, I can have delicious homemade pizza any day of the week, which is a dangerous idea in my house!

If you liked my Microwave Pizza in a Mug or my Pull Apart Pizza Bread, you will absolutely love this instant classic. I cannot wait for you to give this Crazy Dough Pizza a try!

Crazy Dough is one easy recipe for how to make bread and endless variations like my Crazy Dough Pizza recipe for a thin, crispy pizza crust you'll love!
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 4 large pizzas

Ingredients

  • 1 batch crazy dough
  • Olive oil for brushing
  • 1/2 cup (4oz/120g) pizza sauce
  • 2 cups (6oz/80g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup (4oz/120g) pepperoni
  • 1 teaspoon italian dry herbs

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 450oF (225oC). Place a pizza stone or a flat baking tray in the oven to pre heat.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll out the crazy dough base to around 10 inch round.
  • Carefully transfer your pizza base to the flat edged baking tray that has been dusted with flour. Dusting it with flour helps the pizza slide off easily.
  • Brush with olive oil the spoon over the sauce in a even layer.
  • Sprinkle over the cheese and top with pepperoni or additional toppings of your choice (I love to add olives, onion, diced bell peppers, its endless).
  • Slide your pizza from the tray directly on to the pre-heated tray in the oven (if you find your pizza is too heavy with toppings to slide then just put it into the oven on the tray it is already on).
  • Bake for about 9-12 minutes until the curst is slightly risen and crisp and the cheese is melted and bubbling.
  • Slice and serve immediately. Enjoy!

This dough has the best texture and flavor for pizza. I made them tonight. The last of the three pizzas was the BEST one, actually. The last pizza dough (remaining covered with a tea towel) had to wait its turn for the oven for at least an hour. By the time I was able to get to it, it had developed lots of bubbles and once it was baked, turned out the best of them all. I baked mine on a seasoned pizza stone and Ohhhh it was so good, Gemma!

My stepdaughter had friends over so I made three pizza out of one crazy dough. Garlic spinach, pepperoni and rotisserie chicken with mixed vegetables. The teenagers loved them! I figured out that I need to lower the temperature by 10F if it’s required under 375 and by 20F if it’s higher than 375. For most of the recipes, no need to bake longer.
Thank you so much for your easy awesome recipes!

Hi Gemma. I love making this pizza recipe and have planned to use it for my daughters Halloween birthday party. Can you suggest a bold way to make halloween shaped mini pizzas? I know your no yeast recipe would likely work better but I wondered if maybe there was a way to use a cutter and part bake them. Then cook them all up just before serving with a mix of toppings. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you, Julia . PS: Congrats on your family news 🙂

Hi Gemma I finally made the Crazy Dough today. Made my first ever Pizza and it came out great 🙂 My Son and husband loved it and I am so happy, thank you so much. Since we are in a lock-down due to Corona, my son is home and was extremely happy to know i am making a pizza. He had no idea which recipe I am following and his comments were: “Actually Amma {that means Mom} the Dough Is Super and so your Pizza tastes great, better make two next time” 😀 Now the only sad part is that… Read more »

Hi Gemma. I want to make this crazy dough but I don’t have Greek yoghurt. Can I use regular yoghurt instead?
